Pull up a chair for an evening of anarchic theater, live music and strange doings. One wintry morning, Prudencia Hart – an uptight academic – sets off to attend a conference in the Scottish Borders. As the snow begins to fall, little does she know who or what awaits her. Inspired by the border ballads and delivered in a riotous romp of rhyming couplets, devilish encounters and wild karaoke, Prudencia’s dreamlike journey of self-discovery unfolds among and around the audience.

With a rollicking text by David Greig, live music and a terrific sense of fun, The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart is the lock-in to end all lock-ins. The production won a Herald Angel award at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival as well as the award for Best Music and Sound at the Critics’ Awards for Theater in Scotland that same year.
